senator from this committee, the senator from new mexico and the senator from virginia. our first secretary of the treasury, alexander hamilton, observe energy is a leading character in good government. the president must lead in a divided government and must not advocate his or her responsibility. president obama has the responsibility to propose a real bipartisan plan to avert the fiscal cliff that can pass both the house and the senate. withdrawing from the recommendations of the simpson- bowles commission, the president could propose a plan that would not only avert the so-called fiscal cliff, but also help us avert the fiscal abyss. if president obama were to offer such a plan, republicans would act favorably. going over the cliff is unnecessary. as it has been observed in "the wall street journal," the president is boxing in the republicans. he is offering them a deal they cannot accept. first, the president has repeatedly called for a balanced solution involving both revenue and less spending. what is obvious to the most casual observer is that this plan is not a balanced.
: in farmington, new mexico, a republican. smitty. this is if anybody wants to know how much money we waste, we recently had a guy in the northwest that won the lottery and took home $800,000 cash and went to his local food stamp office, told them he had won the money and they said he still qualified for food stamps. these people are nuts. the federal government probably has a very minimum -- and i've worked for government and i've worked in the utility industry, which is almost the same as the government, at least 40% overpaid. too many people working. at least 40% more people than they need to do the job. when these people say they're cutting the budget, they're not cutting a pink. they are cutting the growth in government. if congress does not vote themselves raising any more. they get automatic raises. unless somebody has the go nads to say we need a raise this year. they have not done that since they put that into effect. they don't vote on raises and more. host: your response? guest: i don't agree with all of youro fax ofncts. one can find instances of fraud and waste in the government as
from albuquerque, new mexico. these are the numbers. if you are making $1,100 a month, i checked out social securityworks.com. over the courts of 20 years you get $28,600. >> that's how much you would be cut. >> by the chained cpi? >> yeah. >> bill: that's a lot of money. >> it's a lot of money. you know what? this is did be these are such hardship cuts. i think for the president to throw social security into a budget deal like this is despotism. i'm sorry. at least george bush when he wanted to privatize social security, he didn't try to weasel it through in a budget deal. i can't believe i am saying this about george bush but he opened a national dialogue and the nation rejected it. i don't think the president -- and by the way, nancy pelosi yesterday on andrea mitchell was saying she thought she had the votes for this. >> bill: i know. >> caller: i feel like i have been betrayed. >> bill: i do, too, jean. i think a lot of people feel like they have been betrayed. >> that's why i asked barbara lee and she said nancy hasn't talked to her but
washington post" -- again, this is a front-page story in "to washington post." next up is john in new mexico. john, tell us your story. caller: good morning. i was raised in texas, and my grandfather had a farm. a rite of passage is when a boy turns six or seven, you teach them how to shoot with a .22. we never had more than anything with three bullets in it. we would go out in the woods with two bullets sometimes and we could shoot two deer. that is all we brought. the man had two bullets in a double barrel shotgun. i just do not understand. right now i have a remington bicentennial 742 semi-automatic hunting rifle. it is probably the most beautiful rifle remington ever made. it shoots four. you can put three and the magazine. i have never needed more than one bullet. host: all that said, john, what changes would you support to the current gun laws? caller: we need to do away with all of these big clips. you take any gun and put a big magazine in it, you make it a war gun. who buy these guns and there are so many people buying guns that do not have any business owning a gun. who's to say wh
of problems he caused, he goes on vacation. and betty is with us from albuquerque, new mexico. democrats line. good morning. caller: good morning and happy holidays. when we discussed the republican party these days, it seems people do not want to talk about the fact that they really are not a viable entity and probably have not been for the last 10 years. bruce bartlett, a gentleman who is a hang wrecking -- high- ranking republican, said it 6 simply. the party has been reduced to stupid people and crazies. that is what john boehner has had a lot of problems. these people have taken over. the american public has come out of this 30-year,. we realize why we are where we're at. we're in this terrible fiscal problem because of policies that originated under bush-cheney in the name of two wars, tinkering with the doughnut hole in medicare, and tax cuts that were given to the wealthy during times of war. unprecedented, never done before in the history of the united states. all of these things combined have gotten us into this fiscal problem. guest: i think you can clearly look, over the years fro
. but some states don't have it. connecticut, maryland, massachusetts, tennessee, new mexico, nevada. bunch of states don't have it. the trend will move back quickly, i predict within six months you'll see those states moving back to the majority of states in the country. but you know, there was an issue and geraldo rivera knows it well, about mental health in this country, about whether the mental health system was abusive or not. it went into disarray, disrepair and dysfunction. a lot of mental hospitals were closed, including in the state of connecticut. there is also a study in the state of connecticut that says only 25% of the children who are diagnoseable with mental illness will receive treatment. that's an astounding number. >> alisyn: it is and tragic. that's a problem. as a legal analyst, do you think that we should be able to involuntarily commit people to mental institutions? >> sure, and we don't do it and we have the composite to do it across the -- capacity to do it. stigma attached to it. parents don't want to do it. they feel guilty. they feel they've let their child down.
" everybody. check out gretta on the record tomorrow night with new mexico governor susanna martinez, a rising star in the party. who knows where her role will be as we move forward. certainly, someone that will be mentioned at the very least as a vice-president next time around. >> alisyn: it's interesting, because gretta gets sort of a back, back stage view of governor martinez and not just a sit-down. >> dave: and certainly will reveal her plan for immigration in the party moving forward. >> alisyn: tune into that. meanwhile, we have the headlines because egypt's supreme court is suspending all work. after thousands of egyptians took to the streets to support their president. >> hey. >> alisyn: this is the scene in cairo yesterday as egyptians rallied behind president morsi and now says he will not keep working until the pressure on them ends. and there will ab vote on a new constitution in two weeks, if approved, it would take the place of the one passed in november and opponents say the constitution is flawed and undermines basic freedom. there's new details about that horrible miami bus

, jeff bingaman, of new mexico, someone who's always brought intellectual rigor, a lawyer's insistence on thoroughness and a real commitment to people. it's been an honor and a pleasure to work with him on the help committee, especially on the affordable care act. i was proud to support him all that he did, particularly in developing and focusing on the health work force for the future. i knew i could count on jeff in the committee and on the floor as one of those men that i refer to as the ga gallahads, where mn of quality always support we women as we sought equality. our initiatives to end discrimination against women in the health care and in the workplace were some of our proudest achievements in working together. i also would like to comment about jon kyl. i've worked across the aisle from jon kyl and i've been seated across the table from him at everything from bible study group to the senate intelligence committee. we studied the words of the bible together to make ourselves better and we worked in our committees to make the world better. we lived through september 11th and the
border. that would be very helpful. i think we want to work together with mexico and their new leadership on what we do with respect to illegal migration from central america. but all of these things, as your question says, they all are related with each other s you have to create the right balance. you have to have the right way for people to come in legally. you have to have the right balance for who can come in to work particularly in certain jobs where there's a continued labor shortage. when you do that, it allows us on the enforcement side to focus on those who have more nefarious purposes. >> suarez: now you've been a prosecutor, as you mentioned. you've been an executive, a state executive. but you've also been an elected official long enough to know that this is a political question as well. did november 6 change the calculations on both sides of the aisle? is there a new energy to get this done one way or the other? >> well, i think speaking in terms of how we look at it, at department of homeland security and i think if the white house at large, we've been very committed from t

nine auto plants in mexico, but nissan, honda, mazda and audi will be opening new plants. bmw has. crazy, huh? bmw. over the time frame, mexican auto production is expected to surge from 2.5 million vehicles a year to 3.5 million. i think that's low versus what will ultimately be. and kansas city southern and kansas city southern believes they will have 60% market share. kansas city southern should benefit from the auto rebuild that's needed in the wake of hurricane sandy. can't get this stuff to america fast enough. united states fast enough. thanks to the strength of the economy, the increasing volumes with declining costs. the gross margins are expanding. how much do we love that in a rail? however, the auto industry only affects about 18% of kansas city southern's revenues. they do have some coal exposure, something that's crushed a great many american railroads, we know that because we have backed away from a lot of rails because of the coal. but they have something the other railroads don't have, consistently high growth, not that low single digit stuff and not susceptible t
are low and it's easy to ship the cars they build to the u.s. via the rails. >> all aboard! >> yep. mexico's probably the cheapest place on earth to make stuff to send to the united states. and speaking of the rails, the best way to play this theme is with my new favorite railroad stock that i'm unveiling tonight, kansas city southern, ksu. at a time when many rails are struggling, kansas city southern is thriving, stock at $77 and change, just $6 off its highs. why, oh, why do i like this company so much? simple. geography. take a look at this map of the company's rail network, okay? kansas city southern is the new intercontinental railroad. except unlike the one you studied in school, it runs from north to south instead of east to west. it has 6,600-mile network, it's pretty much evenly divided between the united states and mexico and the network is only one interchange away from every single major market in north america. believe me when i tell you, this area is just booming. i go down there a lot and i cannot believe how strong it is. kansas city southern got into mexico in 1996 when t
